**Until January 22, 2024, the United States Coast Guard is testing an adjusted Flagler Memorial Bridge opening schedule to study the impacts of bridge openings on peak rush-hour vehicle congestion.  During the trial period, the Bridge will only open on the quarter hour, e.g. 8:15 am, between the hours of 7:30-9:00 am and 4:00-6:00 pm, Monday through Friday except for Federal holidays.  The Bridge will continue to open on the quarter and three-quarter hour outside of these designated times.  Following the conclusion of this test, the Bridge will revert to its twice-an-hour openings during all hours, including rush hour.  The Coast Guard will review the results, in addition to the submitted public comment, to come to a conclusion.
